Another Ohio Botanical Symposium is, as we say in true Iron Chef style, "ovah". Today's event was again super. If you weren't able to attend, we were treated to a wide variety of topics on all things botanical, ranging from climate change to clovers and back again to reconstructing the pre-settlement vegetation of Clark County in west-central Ohio.
And congratulations to my botanical sensei Rick Gardner for putting together his eighth conference in a row. One big announcement was made today- in case you missed it. The symposium is moving to an every-other-year format. I know Rick is tired and exhausted from putting this conference together year after year. It gets increasingly difficult to find a new slate of speakers. But Rick, please reconsider. We all love the botanical symposium in its current format and I'd like to see it happen every year.
Thanks Rick for a wonderful event!
